My birthday has come and gone and now I get to (excitedly!) share my Birthday Haul with you guys. I'm super lucky to have such thoughtful people in my life and excited to be 31 and for all the adventures this birthday year might bring :)
It was fun to see the prominently pink birthday card haul and some happy kittens :) Also Jake's card bottom right was so sweet and listed on the back all the good reasons to be 31 :)
Mum got me this awesome vintage cat card, which I love everything about.
Mum also got me a vintage cat tin and brooch, cat socks (which make a sneaky round 2 appearance) and cute cat erasers!
I also have to show you the vintage wrapping paper my Mum used, isn't it the best!
I also got some super funny shirts, it took me a few seconds to get the shirt on the right but pretty obvious once you get it. It's funny because growing up I was obsessed with guinea pigs (RIP cupcake and pixie!) and now I've gone cat crazy (with still a huge love for dogs too!)
My big bro draws these heart people called Hearties and he remembered my love of bo peep lollies!! + way too generous with cash gifitng.
I got this amazing Fluro pink dressing gown from Shane and Lynsey, if you know me, you know I looove pink and I looove being warm!! If you follow me on Instagram you may of seen me wearing it as well :)
Ben's mum sent me some cute paper and a cute little glittery tin
My cousin, heather and her family went above and beyond with their gift. So funny that two people bought me the same awesome socks - love it! I also got an awesome voucher to use up which I've already written up my Wishlist for :)
Last year, Isla (Shane's niece) gave me the cutest bottle cap necklace and this year she presented me with the sweetest loom bracelet, hand wrapped in printer paper :)
And lucky last Ben's card, he loaded me up with cash so after much deliberation aka, should I get an instax or not?!?!? I think I'll save it as my Melbourne spending money with my trip less than a week away now, weeeee!!
I should also mention Dad shouted us all to lunch and to play at Escape Hunt. Do you guys have these puzzle type rooms where you live? It's a relatively new concept for me but right up my nerdy alley - I not so secretly love solving things. Unfortunately I left booking a little late so there was only the difficult room left but we managed to finish all the puzzles and disarm the "bomb" :) The place was super sweet and did give us a few clues and an extra three minutes at the end!

You may not know but I have this problem of being super competitive in board games and the such. Before going into our Puzzle room I was so nervous and even the night before I was having nightmares of people not taking it as seriously as me - lol (I can laugh at my only weirdness luckily). When we got in we had no idea what we were meant to be doing but we soon worked it out and picked up the pace but I can honestly say I've never had an hour disappear so quickly!
Despite me probably taking the thing way too seriously it was so fun and definitely up my alley, not only did you have to solve puzzles but there was even parts where you had to physically find things - okay I realise I'm sounding way too nerdy here :P Anyway, it was a super fun Birthday and I'm appreciative of all the love I got :)
